AIA Illinois Master Class 

Now that the industry is busier again, do you ever look around your office and wonder who is going to step up? Not just as a designer, but as a business-minded professional, you need  someone who acts with the bigger picture in mind, and better understands how to add to your firm’s bottom line.

You probably don’t have time to undertake intensive training of some of your best up-and-coming leaders, to teach them what you’ve learned about winning and managing projects, finances, and client care. So we’ve finally solved the succession problem. 

The Master Class will give 25 participants a new respect for and understanding of their firm culture, and their own role in achieving collective success. In addition to teaching soft business skills, participants will develop a project proposal that could bring new business to your firm. MasterClass intensive workshops are designed to teach future firm leaders the essential business skills that they often don't learn in architecture schools. One day out of the office – lifelong business skills!

NEW REDUCED Fee: $500 for registration.  Includes workshop materials, hotel lodging and meals. 



The modules will be facilitated by seasoned and respected architects and professionals, which cover issues such as finances, firm roles, communications and client care. Small group coaching will include presentation and practice labs where participants can target their most pressing need.
